MSI Completes UK Rosebank Current Measurement Programme

Metocean Services International (MSI) has completed a near 14 month deep water current measurement programme for Chevron North Sea Ltd (on behalf of itself and the Rosebank co-venturers: Statoil (U.K.) Ltd., OMV (U.K.) Ltd., and DONG E&P (U.K.) Ltd) in the Rosebank Field – safely and on schedule.

A mooring comprising TRDI 75kHz acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP), 6 Nortek Aquadopp single point current meters and RBR tide gauge was initially deployed in January 2010. The mooring was recovered, serviced and redeployed in May and October 2010, with final recovery taking place in March 2011.

Over the course of the project various vessels were used for mobilisation out of Aberdeen, and all operations were conducted with zero incidents, accidents or near misses. Client objectives were fully met, with very high rates of data return achieved.

MSI has again proved that the distance between our offices and the work location is no barrier in the successful execution of projects around the world. Careful project management coupled with extensive global experience ensures that all of our projects are run as efficiently as if they were in our own backyard. This approach has helped MSI successfully operate now in 30 different countries since inception in 2003.
